Please will some kind person point me to a download site for Sparky v4.6 Mate.  All I can find is lxde.  I downloaded and installed that into VirtualBox and then installed Mate but upon reboot there was no boot option to choose a DE.  What have I done wrong, please?

All help will be much appreciated.

Install 'sparky-desktop-mate' package, then reboot.

Thanks for your prompt reply.  Installed sparky-mate-desktop package, and rebooted.  No DE option.  Booted straight into lxde. So closed down computer completely and then booted.  Same result.

The MATE desktop can be chosen on the login screen, top right corner.
Did you check it there?
